The tour starts on the Wolfgang Pass at Kessler's Kulm, where the first lap is made. After the warm-up lap, the tour continues along Lake Davos into the Flüela Valley. On the world cup track it goes up the Cologna-Stutz, over the snowfarming track to the end of the Flüelaloipe. On the fast ride back to Davos Dorf, you have enough time to take a breath. Once down in the valley, you head straight into the next side valley: the Dischma Valley. Along the Dischmabach the trail leads to Teufi. Even though the ascents are not very long, they are quite challenging - but the view to the Dürrboden, which reveals itself on the Teufi height, is definitely worth it.

After the quick descent back to the night cross-country skiing Davos, the route continues via Herzloipe (former airfield) past Hofmänner Sport in the direction of Islen. Past the AO center you run over the Wildboden into the Sertig valley. The third and last side valley is also very steep - but different from the Dischma valley. It is perhaps not as steep as the Dischma valley, but all the longer. Starting from the mill Sertig, the trail goes along the stream ascending towards Sertig Dörfli. The view from the highest point is impressive. The Sertig Dörfli with the beautiful church, the waterfall and the famous Walserhuus in one view... Unforgettable.

Now we follow the same trail back to Davos Frauenkirch. When you arrive in Davos Frauenkirch, the marathon route is over. The bus takes you back to Davos Platz (free with the Davos Klosters Premium Card). If you still have enough strength, you can walk back on the cross-country trail along the Landwasser (stream).
